This Friday, we will be having a Valentine’s/Single’s Awareness Day Potluck/Game Day with the Manoa Academy of Gamers from 3:30p to 7:00p! It will be a small potluck so you can bring snacks, food, and other things to trade and eat.

Games at the event may vary, but we are planning for a play session of Monster Prom and Hatoful Boyfriend (if someone has a copy). Alternatively, we could watch romance-themed showings and/or karaoke session if there is enough of a demand.

We hope to see you there!

Game Days
We’ll be right back in the iLab this week!

As always, be sure to check our calendar to find up-to-date information about our meetings and events!

Today, we will not be in the iLab– instead, we will be in Kuykendall 209, from 3:30p to 7:00p. Although we won’t have the fancy gaming PCs of the iLab, we still run Kuykendall game days the same as we always do: I will be bringing multi-outlets, as well as the gaming PC and the projector. Those who go to MAG’s game days in the iLab are welcome to join in! As always, if people are interested, we go out and grab food after the meeting.

If you are interested in participating in (or even just taking a look at) the Global Game Jam in the iLab, they will be running today’s meeting from 4pm to 9pm today, and through the weekend. It is a hackathon for video game design, for both programmers and artists.

You can also comment if you have any questions or ideas for us!

The Manoa Academy of Gaming has reservations every Friday from 3:30p-7:00p in the iLab, starting this week! As long as that holds, we will have our open game days there.

We are going to have Thursday anime showings every week as well, but our room reservation is still going through. For now, use this nomination form to let us know what you’d like to watch! Stay tuned for more info on Thursday meetings.

Friday in the iLab

This Friday will also be our first meeting in the UH Manoa iLab, beginning at 3:00PM! These will be called Extra Curricular Community (ECC) Meetups where we will be able to use the space along with other organizations such as the Manoa Academy of Gamers (MAG) and the Osu! Club at UH Manoa. Come on over and meet our clubs!

Since the iLab will not have open hours this semester, we are working with the iLab to make the ECC a weekly occurrence. Like previous Fridays, we plan to hold the same Fresh Friday activities at ECC Meetups.

The end of the year is upon us! As such, we’ll have something fun for our last Friday meeting tomorrow: feel free to join in on a casual potluck and singing session with Vocaluxe/Ultrastar in Kuykendall 209! For those of you going to Avengers: Endgame during the day, we’ll start our thing a bit later in the evening, and go from 5:00p – 10:00p.

Check out the list below for a full catalog of the songs we’ve got:

We can also take Twitch Sings for a test run as well.

Bring some food, and enjoy the music!

We have our post Valentine’s Day party this Friday from 4:30 to 10:00pm on the second floor of Kuykendall!

As it is a potluck, please bring food or drinks to KUY 208 to share so everyone’s stomachs will be satisfied. Please also bring food that is substantial so we won’t live off saturated fats and chips, thank you (^^).

We will also have games and karaoke in the other rooms, so come game and sing your hearts out! Come have fun with us, we’ll see you there!
